It’s that time of year again! Magic Kingdom is decked out and ready for you to be tricked and treated by Mickey and the Gang for the annual Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. I don’t know about everyone else, but this is one time of the year that my wife and I really look forward to.
Disney has decided to let the villains run amok this year. You will be able to find Jafar at Adventureland, the Queen of Hearts at her normal spot (Fantasyland by the Mad Hatter’s Tea ride). Lotso will be by Buzz Lightyear’s Star Command, plus Disney has decided to turn the Diamond Horseshoe (which normally houses Woody and gang) into Club Villain, which will house Cruella De Vil, the Tremain sisters, Dr. Facilier, and more. The décor will be glowing, the music, lively, and well a villainous atmosphere.
Another addition is an expansion to Phineas and Ferb’s Creepa Crew Pre-parade show; it will be an interactive experience along the parade route. Another great addition is Wreck-it Ralph and Vanellope, who will be added to the Boo to You Parade!
If anyone has not been to this party, now would be the perfect time. There will be many candy stops for trick or treating to help get your sugar rush on. The Villains Mix & Mingle show can be seen in front of Cinderella’s Royal Castle (weather permitting) and other must-see items include, the Boo to You parade, the “Happy Hallowishes” fireworks spectacular and in Tomorrowland there is a Scream-o-ween ball for dancing with high-energy music.
Select dates for this party will begin on September 1st. Party hours are 7pm – midnight, but you are allowed early access at 4pm. Advanced tickets are available at Disneyworld.com. Pass holders are able to get a discount when pre-purchasing online for select nights.
The parade will be at 8:15 and 10:30 with the Hallowishes Fireworks starting at 9:30. Select dates will be September 1, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 21, 23, 26, 28, as well as October 2, 3, 5, 9, 10, 13, 16, 17, 19, 21, 23, 24, 26, 28, 30, 31.
For those with dietary restrictions you may go to Guest Relations at City Hall as they usually offer alternate options to the trick or treat candy. Don’t forget everyone is encouraged to dress up in costumes. Be sure to go to Disneyworld.com to see the costume restrictions and guidelines.
